5 Things You Can Do To Support Your Children’s Immunity
As with most things - preparation is key. So think about supporting your immunity and your children’s before you get sick. That means you might have a chance of escaping the illness or at least only having minimal symptoms.
Supporting your children’s immunity could look like:
A daily tonic - Our Immunity Tonic is a simple ‘berry’ drink that you can add to drink bottles or offer with breakfast or afternoon tea. There have been multiple studies that have found elderberry effective in supporting your immune system.
Zinc - Another great way to support your children’s immune system is to consider a zinc supplement (ask a professional for an age appropriate dose). Zinc can help support immunity and skin health, among a variety of other functions. Our bodies can't synthesise micronutrients like zinc, so it’s important you find these in other sources.
Sleep - Sleep is essential for recovery and your children’s immunity as it allows their bodies to rest and reset. When we sleep well, we have a better chance of fighting off anything that comes our way.
To support sleep you could establish a regular bedtime and incorporate nervous system supporting herbs like chamomile, passionflower, lavender or Californian poppy to help your body get to sleep more efficiently. We’ve made a Kids Rest and Calm with chamomile and Californian poppy that is great for your wee ones sleep and calm.
Washing hands - Mind blowing I know. But general hygiene is always important. Wash hands before eating - instill this in small people.
